I decided after reading several threads about stripping dipes via multiple hot washes to give it a try. I could not believe how it took 5 washes with no detergent to stop getting suds! I am new to cloth diapering, so this is after only 2 1/2 months of washing. I use Gain, and only a very small amount. I always follow each wash/rinse with an extra rinse. I was not having stink problems, wicking, repelling, or anything like that. I just had the time yesturday so gave it a whirl. I am going to do the same thing later today with all my dipes that weren't in that load. If I switched to a natural deteregent (like Allen's?) would this not happen? Do I just need to plan on every couple of months doing a good strip of all my dipes? I had been using RLR around the 1st of every month. I guess that does not strip them as well though? Thanks for your thoughts on this. I was just really surprised!
